No-compromises design and technology in a new constant F2.8 zoom lens that can fully utilize the performance potential of current and future high-resolution camera bodies.
Unprecedented resolution and detail
An XA (extreme aspherical) element with superlative surface precision works with ED elements for extraordinary resolution that can capture breathtaking texture and detail.
Bright, fast F2.8 at any focal length
Keep exposure settings constant throughout the zoom range to maintain low-light capability or action-stopping shutter speeds with consistently spectacular image quality.
Precise focus at blazing speed
Direct Drive SSM (DDSSM) minimizes spurious motion while refined algorithms enhance AF operation speed. Smooth and quiet for movies as well as stills.
Professional lens control features
A focus mode switch, focus hold button, and zoom lock switch provide professional control for a wide range of shooting situations.
Beyond the G Lens
Fast, accurate focus
G Master series lenses take imaging and expression to previously unattainable levels with a stunning blend of extremely high resolution and softly dissolving background bokeh.  Extreme aspherical lens (XA lens)  Aspherical lens  Super ED glass  ED (extra-low dispersion) glass
MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) describes how well a lens can reproduce fine details, measured as the degree of contrast achieved between finely spaced lines.  Contrast (%)  Distance from optical center of lens (mm)  At 24 mm / Max. aperture  At 24 mm / F8 aperture  At 70 mm / Max. aperture  At 70 mm / F8 aperture  Spatial frequency  10 lines pairs / mm  30 line pairs / mm  Radial values  Tangential values
